New releases

The initial releases of Very Dirty Stories #206 to Very Dirty Stories #259 are now available on all three retailers we directly publish to and trickling outward to their distribution networks. They can be found on Smashwords and Rakuten Kobo and Amazon.

The transition to working on Cherish Desire Singles and Cherish Desire Divinations is proceeding slowly. Lots of formatting. Lots of revisiting standards to update them to work better within print editions. Overall things are going well, it's just a lot of work. Anticipate Cherish Desire Singles: Sexy Identities Collection 3, Cherish Desire Singles: She Comes First Collection 1, Cherish Desire Singles: Object Confessions Collection 9, and Cherish Desire Singles: Object Confessions Collection 10 by end of February. More new titles are in flight as well, but we're allowing time for corrections and processing revisions of related titles.

"Author To Author: Brutal Trial And Error"

written by Max D

I just published and republished the same title to Smashwords 21 times. I just iterated through the same title 8 times on Amazon KDP. I just tested the same title 5 times on Rakuten Kobo. Each time finding something wrong. Each time seeing a new glitch. Each time needing to tailor the Word document source further to suit a specific retailer.

This whole process sucks.

While I had hoped there would be a better convergence over time for retailers supporting self-publishing, I'm finding the opposite it true.
